05/12/10 157 W - + 3 - 5 Raleigh Police Headquarters Open House, Monday, May 24

Speaking of our friends in blue, the Raleigh Police Department has invited the public to an open house of their interim headquarters at 6716 Six Forks Road, on Monday, May 24, at 9:30 a.m. The announcement is posted on the home page of the city web site. The office building was purchased by the city in late 2008, and intended as a temporary headquarters during construction of the Clarence E. Lightner Public Safety Center. Though the latter project is in a bit of limbo, the police department proceeded with their relocation.

As this WRAL story notes, the building houses the office of the police chief, records, recruiting, internal affairs, and administrative staff. Other offices were moved elsewhere. Evidence and found property is now housed at the new Downtown District Stationhouse and Evidence Facility at 218 W. Cabarrus Street. And most of the detective division was moved to 4501 Atlantic Avenue.
